An ABC movie, 'Velvet,' and the network's news program '20-20' were the only non-repeats among the Top 10 shows. ABC's broadcast of the movie thriller 'Coma' placed No. 3.
In the early evening news category, 'CBS Evening News with Dan Rather' was the top rated program for the 123rd consecutive week, followed by ABC and NBC.
